Watch Game of Thrones ‘First of His Name’ promo (Video)


This Sunday evening will mark the halfway point of this season of Game of Thrones, and it has already been as thrilling as expected up to this point. ‘First of His Name’ will be the fifth episode in the season, and in anticipation of the episode, below is a 36-second long promotional video of what to expect from Sunday’s episode of one of the most watched television shows in history.

As you can see from the promo, Daenerys Targaryen is wondering if she ultimately does have enough troops to take on King’s Landing. Also, Tommen is sworn in as King while Jon Snow plans to march on Craster’s Keep, while Arya and The Hound are back and we’re left wondering just what Littlefinger is up to.

Game of Thrones has been breaking viewing records nearly all season long as it inches its way toward becoming one of the most watched franchises in television history. Week in and week out we’re left on the edge of our seats wondering what’s going to happen next, and videos like this just do more to aid in that excitement.

Be sure to stick with FanSided on Sunday when the episode airs as we will be providing complete coverage of the airing live as it happens.

    Where is all this “one of the most watched television shows in history” coming from? It’s an awesome show, but it’s not even one of the top 25 television shows on RIGHT NOW, never mind in television history!

    Last week GoT got 6.9 million viewers, which is the highest the show’s ever gotten. Unforgettable was the 25th most watched show of the week with 7.6 million viewers. Even if you’re only talking about cable TV, Walking Dead’s season finale just over a month ago got over 15 million viewers. (Which is probably why they help off the GoT premiere this season so that it wouldn’t have to go against TWD again this year, after being beaten handily by it last year.)

    It would be nearly impossible for any show on HBO to become one of the most watched television shows in history, because of its subscription model, which keeps it out of the vast majority of homes in America.
